Vintage Board Restoration

Post by stinky_wes » Thu Sep 25, 2014 10:40 am

I'm looking at getting one of my dad's old boards repaired/restored. Does anyone know someone (preferably NSW) who does quality work and colour matching? It's got a decent ding from a fin on the underside and the swallow tail is a bit soft, but the rest only needs a light polish.

I should probably add that it's not your standard board but a '78 Jim Banks Clean Lines twinnie that dad had made for him while working at G&S. Cost or time isn't an issue.

I've chatted with Dave Platt about getting some work done but eventually abandoned the idea, lives Gosford/Central Coast area.

If you live closer to the Northern Beaches of Sydney, try Craig from Splash Ding Repairs - 0421 101 678

Hes a really top guy and very good with the tools as well. I've seen photos of really sharp restorations hes done before.
